Touring the Stars: Benet III (abbreviated TtS:Benett) is the second in a series of supplement Sourcebooks designed to detail worlds featured in Battletech Universe. The book is part of a series of in-universe profiles of articles written by Professor Bertram Habeas, in his series of books collectively known as Touring the Stars. In this book, Mr. Habeas writes up the lost world of Benet III, revealing its entire history from founding during the Terran Alliance's reign to its demise during the early part of the Early Republic Era, or better known as the Dark Age era.

This book marks the beginning of a PDF web exclusive product produced by Catalyst Game Labs to utilize for both players using the A Time of War RPG rules and provides a campaign information for players using the Total Warfare series of books to as back drop for their game.

Publisher's Description[edit]

The mineral-rich planet Benet III served as a place of industry, a base for military forces and as a home to a hearty, stubborn populace—a people who survived the Succession Wars, the FedCom Civil War and the Jihad, only to be all but wiped out by the fickle planet itself. In Touring the Stars: Benet III, players learn about the planet's constant volcanic and seismic activity, as well as the infamous "Death Mists" that eventually led to the disastrous end of Benet III.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.
